Kolkata: CISF personnel at the Kolkata Airport have apprehended a Indian passenger who allegedly concealed gold worth over Rs 8 lakh in packets containing horse excreta, officials said on Friday.

Anguswamy Ramaiah (41), who arrived at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport from Myanmar on Thursday evening, was nabbed for smuggling a total of 215 gms of the yellow metal, they said.

"Four pieces of yellow metal bar weighing about 162.1 gms wrapped in blue carbon paper and concealed in four separate horse poop (excreta) packets were recovered from the baggage of the traveller. Another yellow bar was recovered from his wallet," a senior official said.
